Marmorino Lime Plasters provide Venetian Styles

Marble is a metamorphic rock composed primarily of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) that is combined with slate lime to create a lime putty (grassello). Used since antiquity, Italian lime plasters have been part of the construction trade for both decorative and load bearing building elements.

These plasters are graded according to the size of the marble grain from extremely fine to coarse. The finest grains have the highest sheen obtained from the polishing process and are often termed as ‘Marmorino Plaster’, one of the most requested polished lime plaster finishes.

Tadelakt, for centuries, has been appreciated for its durability and its aesthetically pleasing exotic appearance in wet areas such as showers and spas, as well as on floors and countertops. It can be finished with dark or light Olive Oil Soap.

   Technical Tip

Tadelakt is similar to Marmorino and is usually applied in 2 coats with a trowel. It can be coloured as required and once fully dry Tadelakt is protected by a special cream soap that must be completely absorbed.

Decorative Lime plaster is composed of sand, lime, and water making it breathable, especially in humid areas such as bathrooms. If moisture gets stuck inside walls then health risks can increase, due to mold, as well as issues concerning the buildings’ structure.

Tadelakt is a traditional Moroccan wall finish, originating in the Marrakesh region. It can be found in Moroccan steam baths, and traditional Moroccan houses of Marrakesh. It has a smooth appearance, slightly shiny like Marmorino Carrara, but thicker and less textured.

These plaster styles produce different architecture textures from a glass-like polish to very smooth to extremely textured with a varied relief.

DRY LIME PLASTER

Dry bagged lime plaster mixed with an aggregate, either marble or sand, has a limited cure time once mixed with water.

Dry products duplicate group (a) above but offer applicators the advantage of mix control over the viscosity of the paste, to shorten or lengthen cure times.

ACRYLIC PLASTER

Acrylic plaster is a wet mix with an acrylic binder. It is a relatively new texture that has its advantages in stability, ease of coloration and being easier to apply. Available in Acrylic Venetian Plaster (i.e. very smooth) and Texture Base (smooth to coarse) these can be polished accordingly to achieve different types of architectural wall design finishes.
